That's a damn fine questionp. My guess without doing any testing would be 'no' as well.

During the four step order process, you are presented you with a selection of administrative domain email contact addresses where you want the approval and delivery emails sent. I believe these are pulled automatically from the registered domain(s) in the account. It's been a few months since I've run through the wizard so I can't remember exactly.

I wouldn't touch StartCOM with a ten foot pole myself, but other people seem to like them. The whole certificate authority business is a joke, but whaddya do. We're held hostage by this oligopoly of web browser software vendors.

I think projects like DNSchain are the way to resolve most of the problems with DNS and encryption certificates. Check out okturtles.com
